i was reading another forum about this and a few mums said 'mums who leash thier child/ren are lazy' i personally dissagree. my 3 year old son has a learning difficulty and finds it hard to understand some things (like running onto roads) so for his safety i put his leash on him, i have a 10 week old daughter who is usually in her pram or in a carrier so if my son was to run out i would basically have to choose to either leave my daughter in her pram where she is and run for my son before he gets hit by a car or just leave my son get hit by a car to stop my daughter rolling off in her pram, so i choose to put a child leash on him to protect him.... another point i have is in most places you have to have a dog on a leash to stop them running off but its ok to led your child run off??
would do you think? to leash or not to leash? lol
